Dave Dorman Announces New Mini Art Book

Posted in Chicago Comic Book Artists, Collectibles, Collections, Collectors, Comic Book Art, Comic Book Artist, Entertainment, Fan Culture, Geek, Geek Culture, GI Joe, GI Joe Snake Eyes, Nerd Culture with tags , , , , , on February 26, 2014 by DaveandDeniseDorman
Dear Friends,
I am doing a follow-up to my GI Joe art book AMERICAN HERO. I had a lot of positive reaction and plenty of fans asking if I was going to do another volume. I have a lot more art from my years working with Hasbro designing the GI Joe toys, and with the demand, I have decided to produce another book.
For those who missed the first volume, this book features artwork I produced for Hasbro’s GI Joe toy figure line. The art featured the characters painted as if they existed in real life. The art was for presentation only, in-house at Hasbro and not intended for reproduction. For most of this art, this is the first time it’s been seen by the public outside the Hasbro offices. 
American Hero: Book 2

American Hero: Book 2

The specs of the book will be the same as the first volume of American Hero:
  • Size: 6″ x 9″
  • Pages: 24
  • Card stock covers
  • High-quality interior paper
  • Limited Edition: 300 copies
  • Each will be hand signed by me, Dave Dorman
  • Price is $20.00 (plus $5 shipping worldwide)
You can order the book directly from me by going to this page on my website: http://www.davedorman.com/americanhero2.shtml
P.S. I still have some copies of AMERICAN HERO Book 1 if you missed it. They can be ordered on the same web page.

Dear Friends,

I am considering doing a bunch of character studies–fully rendered pencil drawings–like this one:

BSG's Captain Adama by Dave Dorman #SoSayWeAll

BSG’s Captain Adama by Dave Dorman #SoSayWeAll

for inclusion in my summer sketchbook LEADWORKS. While I have my own favorite characters to draw, I thought I would throw it out to you, my fans, to get some ideas on what you would like to see me draw. If you have suggestions for any character from any media (films, comics, TV, media, etc.) just list them on either of my Facebook Fan Pages in the relevant thread here: http://facebook.com/davedormansstudio

or here: http://facebook.com/davedormanwastedlands

and I will take them under consideration. If I use YOUR suggested character, I will be sure to credit your name with a special thanks on the related page in the new LEADWORKS 2014 book.

Thanks for reading and Happy Hump Day,

Dave

Happy Post Thanksgiving, Everyone!
I’ve had a lot of response to Mike Linnemann’s article featuring the best of Magic: The Gathering art for sale (mine is Item #8). Mike posted my art from a little-known internet comic story I did in 2011 for the Planeswalker Webseries on the Wizards of the Coast website. I did one chapter of 8 pages for “Gathering Forces,” which was art for this longer graphic story. Here is the link to my specific chapter http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Multiverse/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/feature2/108a#

Buy it here: http://www.davedorman.com/planeswalkersale.shtml
 The complete graphic novel is titled “Path of the Planeswalkers,” and features many chapters by other great artists in the field. It is worth checking out.
Due the massive rush of inquiries for this art, I am offering these original paintings for sale. I have been selling the panels over the past 2 years at shows, so the art I’ve listed here is all that I still have left from the story. Every piece of the art is painted in acrylic with a little colored pencil embellishment, on 9″ x 12″ inch Bristol board. The sale page on my website is http://www.davedorman.com/planeswalkersale.shtml and there is a Paypal button for each to purchase. Due to the rare and limited availability of these cells, these pieces range in price from $100 -$120 per piece.
Thanks for reading, everybody. There is more holiday shopping fun to come! Keep watching here!
Dave.
